  2. 110 Year Old Ball Player from Philadelphia

    Sep 26, 2006, 9:46 AM EDT

    Silas Simmons, who is 110 years old, grew up in a rowhouse at 17th and Bainbridge.  His amazing story is featured in today’s NYTimes: Simmons, known as Si, was born on Oct. 14, 1895 — the same year as Babe Ruth and Rudolph Valentino, and before F. Scott Fitzgerald and Amelia Earhart. He played at…

  3. All Tied Up With 6 Left

    Sep 26, 2006, 12:42 AM EDT

    3 Phillies games in three days has worn me out, short post here to rest up for the playoff push. Tonight was a tough loss.  The pen seemed to let this one get away.  A win would have given us a fairly commanding lead over the Dodgers, but we are neck and neck with 6…

  4. Brian Westbrook is a Beast

    I highly reccomend going to check out the Inquirer’s photo album from yesterday’s victory over the Niners.  Click back and forth between photo 4 and photo 5.  It’s awesome. Brian Westbrook is one of the most underrated players in the NFL.  He does it all. -Video of Mike Paterson’s 98 yard fumble return & Westbrook’s…

  5. Lovely Rain Soaked Sunday

      Phillies v. Marlins – Sunday, September 24    Originally uploaded by emc303. The Phillies remain 1/2 game up on LA for the wild card. Things aren’t as they used to be at the ball park in South Philly.  In recent weeks, when the Phillies take the field, I expect them to win. In Sunday’s…

  6. WATN: David Bell

    Yahoo News photo. If you can’t tell, that is a picture of former Phillies third baseman David Bell.  Bell has been spending his days in Brew City.  He helped the Brewers to a 5-3 victory on Sunday with his 7th home run of the season.  Here’s to you David Bell!  We don’t miss you for…

  7. Getting Wild

    Sep 24, 2006, 9:21 AM EDT

      Phillies v. Marlins – Saturday, September 23    Originally uploaded by emc303. Thunderous boos at a Phillies game can only mean two things in September 2006: a) Ryan Howard is being intentionally walked, or b) Pat Burrell just poked his head out of the dugout. The words of commenter RickShuBlues over at Beerleaguer touched…

  8. ‘Ryan Howard is everything that’s good about the game.’

    Sep 22, 2006, 9:21 AM EDT

    ESPN’s Jon Miller believes that people attacking Ryan Howard are completely off base.  He spoke out on a nationally televised game last week and also in today’s Inquirer: "From what I’ve seen and from talking to him and talking to his teammates about him, Ryan Howard is everything that is good about the game," Miller…

  11. Conlin and Fitzpatrick Share the Same Rusty Typewriter

    Sep 20, 2006, 1:52 PM EDT

    Apparently, Bill Conlin doesn’t like the Internet either.  I don’t know what it is with these crunchy old Inquirer/Daily News guys.  On Ryan Howard, who he painfuly dubs "the Rhynamiter:" But whenever an athlete is anointed with this level of acclaim, the Mickey Mice are never far behind. The Drive-By Media, as Rush Limbaugh likes…

  12. Eagles Fanhouse Updates

    Sep 20, 2006, 1:44 PM EDT

    Two of the featured bloggers over at the Fanhouse do a point/counterpoint feature.  Today they argue whether the Eagles need to be more of a running team or if they can win it in the air. MJD Point: The Eagles Are Going to Need to Run the Ball MDS Counterpoint: Philly’s Point Will Come from…
